Organised by the Dana Foundation, Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is an opportunity to let people know about the progress that is being done in brain research as well as progress in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the brain, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, stroke, schizophrenia and depression.

The 2021 edition of Brain Awareness Week took place on 15-21 March.

Every year, FENS, on behalf of the Dana Foundation, offers grants to Brain Awareness Week event organisers.
